A mother muses about what life might have to offer as she watches her teen daughter have fun on the sea shore, and hopes that it is a good life!
Sitting at the seashore, basking in our moment,
My eyes wander to an effervescent adolescent.
In a trice, my mind starts brimming with thoughts of your future,
Pondering over sowing the right seeds for you as I nurture.
With a hopeful gleam in my eyes and a smile on my lips,
My grey matter begins to converse with you about life, the tricks and tips.
I cannot promise you a life full of happiness,
Because life, my baby, is a beautiful mess.
It is going to be like these waves of the sea,
With its peaks and lows, without a symmetry.
There will be moments of tranquillity, and moments of chaos,
You’ll often be humored, and often inundated with pathos.
Just like the waves kindle our spirits in its every manifestation,
Get drenched through the crests and troughs, the storms and stills of life, and have fun.
The world is constantly weaving magic with infinite joy on a platter,
We need to keep finding our mojo from what it has to offer.
Understand that true ecstasy is seldom externally driven,
It’s within you, and in your atman lies your heaven.
Abruptly, I am jostled out of my reverie by your uninhibited, charming giggle,
Experiencing euphoria, warmth and harmony as we cuddle.

Be it a working or a homemaker mother, every parent needs a support system to be able to manage their children, housework, and mental health.
Let me at the outset clarify that when I mention ‘work’ here, it includes ANY work. So, it could be the work at home done by a homemaker parent or it could be work in a professional/entrepreneurial environment.
Either way, every parent struggles to find that fine balance between ‘work’ and ‘parenting’, especially with younger kids who still need high emotional and physical support from their caretakers. And not just any balance, but more importantly, balance that lets them keep their own sanity intact!
Paromita advises all women to become financially independent, keep levelling up and have realistic expectations from life and relationships.
Heartfelt, emotional, and imaginative, Paromita Bardoloi’s use of language is fluid and so dreamlike sometimes that some of her posts border on the narration of a fable.
Her words have the power to touch the reader while also delivering some hard hitting truths. Paromita has no pretences in her writing and uses simple words which convey a wealth of meaning in the tradition of oral storytellers – no wonder, Paro is a much loved author on Women’s Web.
This June we celebrate twelve years of Women’s Web, a community built by you – our readers and contributors.
